How Emerald Isle Smiles Reduces Radiation Exposure From Patient X-Rays
Film x-rays have been used in dentistry for decades. In the past few years, many forward-thinking dentists like Dr. Myers have invested in digital x-ray technology. Film x-rays cost a bit less than digital x-rays but the long-term exposure to film x-rays can be very harmful to a patient’s overall health. Our digital x-ray uses as much as 85 percent less radiation than traditional x-ray technology.
Why Emerald Isle Smiles Invested In Digital X-Ray Technology?
Digital x-rays are one of the most important new advances to our office. We are not only able to reduce your exposure to radiation but also increase the diagnostic proficiency. In addition to increased diagnostics, we reduce the amount of harmful chemicals and other waste materials associated with traditional x-ray technology. The reduction in waste was a big consideration when deciding to invest in digital technology. We pride ourselves in being “green” and environmentally responsible.
